Children paint the world around us

GOLF, TENNIS, football and an art exhibition by local artists, followed by a dinner and dance and a grand raffle and auction, was the full day’s programme of the Gala Day organised by the Vale Verde International School’s Parents Association, which took place at Parque da Floresta recently.

Annie M.A. Daenens is an art teacher at the Vale Verde school, who, together with the Parents Association, organised an art competition for children with the theme ‘The World Around Us’.

There were many entries from the Núcleo de Educação da Criança Inadaptada (NECI), a school for children with learning difficulties, as well as a big response from the children of Vale Verde International School. Art materials were awarded to the best three submitted pictures by the children of each school.
